Purchased as part of the Holiday gift set and drank it anyway. The pour was of a bright gold to almost copper color capped with a full white head showing off its full carbonation. The nose was big on sugary sweetness with slight acidity in background, solvent like. Flavor is light but sugary, malt liquor like, long cloying sweet finish. This tastes very much sweeter than the imported Canadian we get and has more fusels also.

Cute 250ml Kiddy cans ( hide ‘em in yer jeans from teacher)…noxious sweet kiddy taste (Hides the alcohol well that you intend to get gooned on)_….seems like another winning marketing device for Molson who have staked out the “kiddy” market for their own.

Nothing special or note worthy about this beverage (I say beverage because it has as little in common with real beer as a soft drink) with the exception of warnings on the can to serve extremely chilled…..I can see my gag reflex kicking in if I had to drink this Popsicle-sweet green beer at room temp. Bland pale yellow appeance..no head or aromas to speak of and a sweet corn taste devoid of hops with an indescribably annoying sweet after taste (corn syrup mixed with stale chip oil is the closest I can come in description)

The typical mega brewer let down in the taste department is not the real story here. I think the mindset behind the kiddy kan (250ml) the 6% ABV and the 4-pack is a priceless statement on the devolution of mass Canadian beer marketing politics. They obviously see the kiddies (teens and arrested development twenty-somethings as the main market for their mass produced slop but they must salve their federal nannies who pay lip service to the tragedy of teen addictions and auto deaths (Yet the feds profit handsomely from the arrangement via booze tax and monopoly alcohol sales) So they show “good corporate citizenship” by packaging their little kiddy alcohol bombers in small 2 gulp cans and 4-packs (and sell more units for teens hungry to get gooned on this wobbly pop)……classic modern Canadian compromise of a once proud brewing tradition.

If you guzzle 8 of these buzz bombs before the Averil concert try not to yak on your crew of fall off something high or wet the bed when you pass out….let’s be careful eh?…drink a lot but don’t blame us eh?

--came in a cool looking small thin can, much like Red Bull. No freshness date found.
--poured an average color, maybe slightly darker than a normal lager due to the alcohol content. A nice head that quickly left.

This was nothing more than a marketing tool used by Molson. The size is made to be consummed quickly, because before you know it, the can is empty. The good thing is that it doesn't last long enough to get warm! It is best drunk from the can, to achieve the novelty, but that's all it really is...a novelty. Not much special about the taste.
Thx

Most interesting thing about this product is its packaging...comes in a tall, thin "pony" like can with contents of 250 ml.
Everything about this brew is sub par but marginally.
Nice colour, short of crown..aroma lightly of yeast and the taste is on the sweet side of well balanced.
Limited carbonation and weak bodied.
Find myself wondering "why"...is it the ABV they hope might promote sales? This product deserves to be consumed with a paper bag wrapper....but where to find a bag so small.
Geez!

Basically, Molson Canadian with a little more alcohol. Pours a pale yellow, slightly darker than what I remember Canadian to be. Big head foams up, then fades away. Very carbonated. Smells of corn, alcohol, malt, alcohol and corn. No hops detected. Tasted, well, bad. Overly sweet. Too much fermented corn dominated the flavour. Carbonated, soda mouthfeel. Pretty undrinkable, even cold.

*To try and give this a proper review, I poured three cans into my glass. The cans don't hold very much.
